Some books are (at least mostly) self-contained within this series. This book was a 600 page setup for the next book. I prefer self-contained over open ended, so I have a bias against it in that way.

He's a good writer, but after his initial successes, it's as if the editors just publish whatever he hands them. His initial books, of this series, were concise (lots of story in limited pages). This series has become wordy, some books worse than others. This one was wordy, but not overly so.

His protagonist, Honor Harrington has a smaller and smaller roll in this series as it encompasses a much broader story. I have mixed feelings about that.

Overall, I'll likely continue to read the series. He continues to expand it, and with this book, opens up a story that has been alluded to in a few of the previous books. Not the best of the series, but far from the least of the series.
